Russia's U.N. ambassador said that tensions with the United States are probably the worst since the 1973 Mideast war.But Vitaly Churkin said Friday that Cold War relations between the Soviet Union and Russia more than 40 years ago were different than U.S.-Russia relations today.Churkin also pointed to other positive achievements in U.S.-Russia relations even at this low point.The United States and Russia were also key players in last year's nuclear deal with Iran, and last week they agreed on the Security Council's nomination of former Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Guterres as the next U.N. secretary-general, which Churkin said was "maybe the best success of the Security Council in the last five years". Churkin said Russia would like to normalize relations with the United States.
